    What are you making for dinner tonight? 20th Jun 17 at 12:15 AM
    Am I imagining it?
    My post count has gone down significantly and this thread seems to have disappeared, is this a coincidence?

    What's happened?

    This evening we ate butcher's sausage, creamed fatties, carrots, cabbage and gravy, it was so tasty. Might have been even better with onion gravy, but onions are off limits for me at present.

    HM Sweet and sour chicken tonight, rice for the men, salad for me

    I have really run the freezer down, have a couple of small joints of meat to use, and 6 Steaks, and a fair amount of fresh frozen cod, bass and Pheasant. These will be used over next 10 days, then refill with (mostly) HM food for Xmas - can’t beleive it’s nearly December - where did the year go

    I have put bread on because I'm thinking either beans on toast, or spiced carrot/carrot and lentil soup (which I'll make in InstantPot). In fact, even if we have beans I'll make the soup because the carrots need using up.

    I then have chickpea and sweet potato curry in the fridge for DH to have for lunch for the rest of the week. I have 2 portions of courgetti and lentil bolognese to eat, then will switch to soup. Can you tell I can't be bothered with cooking at the moment!?

    Tonight we're having roast chicken, with dauphinoise potatoes, french beans and carrots. I've also utilised the rest of the pot of cream and made a panna cotta each for pudding.... assuming they set in time.

    OH, who is in charge of veg stocks and the cooking thereof found a bag of tatties that he had forgotten, so mash last night, potato bolognaise bake tonight and I have baked a panful in the Remoska, just as well that he really loves spuds as he will be eating them for a while.

    I am really wanting some rice pud and may go and make one with some lactose free milk. If I can persuade OH to peel some apples I will cook them lightly with some rasps that need eating to go with it. All I need now is some energy to do it!

    Roasted hasselback butternut squash with garlic butter. I didnt bother to peel it first. For me, butternut skin when roasted has a kind of toffee flavour.

    Scampi with beans and HM chips tonight here.

    I need your help folks - I remember seeing a quote somewhere about not leaving things for 'best' and hiding them away in a cupboard but to use and enjoy them (I'm sure it mentioned burning the best candle or something) but can't for the life of me find it...any of you know what i'm talking about?

    Oh thank you so much, that's the bit I remembered 'I would have burnt the pink candle that was sculptured like a rose before it melted while being stored.'

    Have curry in fridge - chickpea and sweet potato - which I made on Monday night. Will just whip up some rice in the Instant Pot and that's us done.

    Lunch will be courgetti with a lentil, olive and aubergine sauce.

    I had made our tea by 9.30am so it's in the fridge!


    Sausage and bean casserole then a blackcurrant flan (trying to use some of the fruit from the freezer).


    Also had butternut squash curry and a naan for lunch (also from the freezer).
